In brief: Many causes

Although diet can have an impact on bowel movements having chronic diarrhea is not normal in general.
You may have some intolerance to certain foods but there are other reasons that need to be evaluated such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory or infectious problems, etc. You should follow-up with a physician for your symptoms.
